Where To Start

We are a "by referral" agency for Colorado veterans and military families, which means you must apply for grant assistance through one of our approved referring agents. To begin, please call our Helpline to see if you qualify to apply for assistance and if you do qualify, we will direct you to the best referring agent.

The Home Front Cares Helpline | 719-434-1501



We provide one-time grants to families in need due to unforeseen circumstances. We assist with items such as rent, utilities, car repairs and other essential life expenses. Visit our Get Help page or refer to the Where To Start box on the right side of this page.


We pay utility bills for veterans and military families through grants from Energy Outreach Colorado, augmented by our general fund. To inquire about getting assistance visit our Get Help page.


An important morale-builder that shows returning soldiers that our community welcomes and appreciates them. The Home Front Cares and several partner volunteer groups meet every plane that arrives in Colorado Springs carrying soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Thanks to a partnership with McDonald’s, we hand every returning service member a cheeseburger and soda, greet them and thank them for their service.

This program also supports welcoming ceremonies for soldiers and families, unit activities, and other functions that are not readily covered by existing military or nonprofit infrastructure.
